New Year Reflections, Freebies & a Fabulous Giveaway :)

I can't believe tomorrow is the last day of 2011!! WOW!! I'm really excited about starting a fresh new year!! My "teacher" new year's resolution is to simply stay organized. This has always been one of the hardest parts of teaching for me. I am a clutter bug with limited space. I have a hard time letting go of "my stuff" because..well.. I might just need it one day. Sometimes I get discouraged & exhausted trying to keep everything in its place. Am I the only one out there who *organizes* for hours and then can't find one darn thing that I need?!?! Thankfully, Deanna Jump's organizational words of wisdom posted {HERE} completely inspired me to keep working on my goal!! First step(s)- have faith, let go of the stuff & deep breath....

As far as a personal new year's resolution, I want to start spending quality time with my hubby. Confession~My almost 3 year old son has only spent a total of 2 nights away from us. It's time y'all...time for me & my hubs to enjoy a little getaway while our precious Parker stays with his grandparents!! Where to go? Where to go?

With all the new year's reflection and excitement for 2012, I made a few things to share with you!

Playful Penguin Math and Literacy Centers

Hey Friends!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday break!!! I'm enjoying every single second of it!!! My house looks like a tornado hit a toy store, but we've been having a BLAST!!!

I posted my Playful Penguins Math & Literacy unit on TpT today! It includes 15 penguin themed hands-on centers, plus a bubble map, brace map, and "All About Penguins" writing paper. Your students will have fun learning about penguins while also practicing important first grade math & literacy skills!! I plan to use these after my Winter Wonderland centers.

Here's a sneak peak for you!!
